Episode 3: Call Me By Your Dad's NameIn the Details: a Celebration of Nuance add
Let's just say--I didn't LOVE Call Me By Your Name. But I think it's a phenomenally well-made movie, and among other things, features a very emotionally intelligent performance by Michael Stuhlbarg. But I more than take issue with the Elio/Oliver love story before shifting the focus back to Stuhlbarg's heartfelt monologue towards the end of the film.
